We are so pleased to announce a new community initiative! The Dalhousie Community Club is “a neighbourly club where we do fun things!”

Once a month, join us for fun, conversation and exploration. The club is for anyone 18+.

There is no limit to what we might do: sometimes it will be an interesting lecture, or a fun activity or a creative craft. Always, it will be a chance to connect with your neighbours and have fun!

Activities will be free or cheap for DCA members.  Guests will be charged $5-$10 depending on the activity. Proceeds will go towards club and community activities (like the Community Pantry we’re trying to implement).

To register, click on the registration link below. To ask a question or suggest an activity for the Community Club, please email

We’d also love to hear from you if we can help make an activity more accessible to you.

Spill the Beans: Managing Your Food Waste

Did you know that more than 60% of food is thrown away in Canada and could have been eaten? Learning simple food planning tricks and ways to store and preserve food can make a difference. Join us for a one-hour workshop to learn more about:

  • ways we can reduce food wastage and how it is beneficial in reducing household costs and minimizing global warming
  • easy food planning​
  • storing and preserving food
  • where to buy affordable produce and support local farmers
  • food labels and what they mean

This program is possible thanks to the generous support of the Calgary Foundation, The Chawkers Foundation and the City of Calgary.
